    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I'm sad to say that the number of pros is shrinking every year

    Pay is generally good

    Cons

    Layoffs are becoming commonplace and morale is sinking!

    Competition is growing in many areas - routing, switching, security, collaboration

    Very few opportunities to advance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut some of the fat at the top and stop cutting individual contributors. It's getting harder and harder for teams to get their jobs done.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
